Quite possibly one of the last books, in the New Testament, to be written, 1 John highlights the love of God shining forth in this world through His Son, Jesus Christ. Love is not merely an activity that He does, but God is love and proved it at the cross.

2 Peter

How long will it be, before the Lord returns?  Many have offered their own predictions, and the world scoffs every time a so-called prophet gets it wrong.  People laughed in the days of Peter, as well.  But the apostle reminds us that the Lord is not slow in fulfilling His promises, but patient not wishing for any to perish.

1 Peter

It’s not easy to follow Christ in a pagan culture. That was especially true for early Christians, many of whom were looked upon with suspicion, slandered, and treated as outcasts by neighbors. How does one respond to these kinds of adversities? The Apostle Peter encouraged his readers to look to the example of Christ. When others hurls insults upon the Lord, He did not retaliate. When suffering, He made no threats, but entrusted Himself to the One who judges righteously.
